The Legacy FC Academy Program is designed for U-8 through U-12 boys and girls who wish to make the transition from recreational to competitive soccer. The program helps develop the technical skills needed to play at the next level. Weekly trainings are designed to enhance the player’s technical abilities, agility, balance, and speed with the ball while building confidence in the player on and off the field.

Further, the Academy Program provides a positive learning experience for all players, concentrates on the growth of the individual within the team structure and emphasizes development of technical skills and tactical awareness.  It is our belief that teaching players is the priority for long term success and will foster more advanced understanding of the elements necessary to achieve that success.  We give players the "freedom to succeed" without the "fear of failure" by encouraging them to take ownership of their decisions in training and games, even at these young ages.  This method guarantees that players will develop more confidence and self-esteem but more importantly, ensures fun and enjoyment for the game of soccer.

The Academy Program is divided into four levels. Registered players are, upon evaluation by the club's coaching staff, assigned to a level based on their age, ability and age group needs.

Competitive teams train twice per week, play in the Shawnee Soccer League (WV) or the Virginia Premier Soccer League (VA), and participate in two to three tournaments per session (Fall, Winter & Spring). U11 & U12 competitive teams are eligible to play in the WVSA State Cup and, if successful, Region I events.

Academy teams train twice per week, play in the Shawnee Soccer League (WV), and participate in at least one to two tournaments per session.

Training groups (player pools) train twice per week, may be invited to participate in friendly matches and/or league matches, and may be invited to participate in home tournaments (one during the Fall session and one during the Spring session). 

Little Kickers (U8 & Below) train twice per week, participate in friendly matches and/or play in the YMCA Soccer League (BECKLEY).
